Is technical analysis profitable?
Technical Analysis is a good and profitable approach to financial markets (not only in Forex market), it is quite easy to understand and very common among traders. What I did for a university project work was comparing three Technical Analysis strategies and see how they performed, how to measure a good performance and giving a crushing remark about Technical Analysis strategies applied in Forex market.
I share with you my analysis.
Please keep in mind that this project work is the starting point for my Master’s Thesis, since the winning strategy about technical analysis is compared with forecasting methods: Artificial Neural Networks, Support Vector Machines and the Random Walk.
